완전 범죄

범죄 행위에 나서는 사람치고 자신이 붙잡힐 거라고 믿는 사람은 거의 없다. 하나같이 완전 범죄를 꿈꾼다는 얘기다. 이러니 인간 사회에서 범죄 행위가 없어질 리 없다. 완전 범죄의 전제는 증거인멸이다. 실제 범인이라도 유죄를 입증할 증거가 없는 한 결백을 주장할 수 있다.

The mentality is ⓒ another reason why criminal activities are not eradicated ⓓ in human societies. ⓔ A premise for a perfect crime is to remove all evidences. As long as there is no evidence to prove guilt, the real offender can claim his innocence

ⓐ Few criminals who plan a crime believe that they will get caught. And almost all of them ⓑ dream of committing a perfect crime. This mentality is ⓒ one reason why criminal activity has not been eradicated ⓓ ø. ⓔ To commit a perfect crime, one must leave no evidence behind. As long as there is a lack of evidence to prove guilt, the offender can claim his innocence.

Writing Tip
ⓐ As criminals plan their crime, few → Few criminals who plan a crime 거의 없다는 점을 강조하기 위해, Few를 첫머리에
ⓑ dream to commit → dream of committing 미래에 대한 꿈은 한 차례 시도가 아니라 지속적인 상태이므로 to 부정사가 아닌 ~ing 형태의 동명사를 쓰고 그 앞에 전치사를 씀
ⓒ another → one 문맥상 완전범죄 발생의 첫 번째 근거 제시, another는 또 다른 예를 들 때 사용
ⓓ in human societies → ø 의미상 없어도 무방한 in human societies 생략
ⓔ A premise for a perfect crime → To commit a perfect crime 완전범죄 ‘시도’를 뜻함



대학 교수가 ‘시신 없는 살인’이라는 완전 범죄를 노리고 아내를 살해·유기한 사건의 충격이 크다. 주도면밀하게 증거 인멸을 시도했지만 강에 버린 아내의 시신이 발견돼 허사가 됐다. 한을 품고 죽었을 아내가 시신으로 돌아와 결정적 증거가 된 셈이다. 완전 범죄의 헛된 꿈에 사로잡힌 인간의 어리석음이 씁쓸할 따름이다.


내가 한 영작
A university professor ⓐ attempted a perfect crime of “a murder ⓑwithout a body,” ⓒkilling his wife and concealing the body. He meticulously planned his crime and tried to destroy all the evidence, but his dream of committing a perfect murder ⓓ was futile as the body turned up ⓔ from a river. ⓕ His wife came back as a dead body and became the most critical evidence to solve her own death. The shocking stupidity of the criminals obsessed with the vain idea of perfect crime leaves bitter feelings toward ⓖthe decency of humanity.

A university professor recently ⓐ attempted to commit a perfect crime ⓑ ø ⓒ by killing his wife and concealing the body. He planned his crime meticulously but his dream of getting away with it ⓓ shattered when the body turned up ⓔ in a river and ⓕ ø became the most critical piece of evidence in solving the murder. The shocking stupidity of criminals like the professor obsessed with the vain idea of a perfect crime leaves me feeling bitter about humanity’s ⓖ general lack of decency.

Writing Tip
ⓐ attempted a perfect crime → attempted to commit a perfect crime 실제로 완벽범죄를 실현한 것이 아님, 완결되지 않은 행위나 시도에는 to 부정사 사용
ⓑ without a body →ø 뒤에 concealing the body와 의미상 중복으로 생략 가능
ⓒ killing → by killing ‘행위’를 강조하는 전치사 by 삽입
ⓓ was futile → shattered (꿈이) ‘산산 조각나다’의 의미로 생생한 이미지를 연상시키는 동사 shatter 사용
ⓔ from → in turned up에 위로 들어 올리고 분리하는 의미 담겨 있음
ⓕ His wife came back as a dead body and → ø 생략해도 문맥상 의미 통함(it으로 대체가능)
ⓖ the decency of humanity → general lack of decency. 결여를 뜻하는 lack을 삽입해야 내용이 성립
